1 Claim. (Cl. 40-125)
The present invention relates to an illumi- to chipvan'd‘sharp'corners ~are-thercfore`objecnated advertising device preferably adapted for
use with com controlled Scales,
of the new device are receivable Within this ccn
_The primary object cf the invention is the pron
5 vision of an advertising device adapted to be
attached to the back of scales and positioned in
Such a marmel- that the advertising matcrial ap-
pearing thereon will be readily noticeable to the
user of the scales,
A further object of the invention is to provide
an advertising device including a frame for use
in conjunction with a casing of essentially rec-
tangular outline and having substantially ver_ tically positioned grooves formed in edge portions

Casinâ sal-_d frame having d pan. of depending
legs or supports extending therefrom, receivable
in said grooves and disposed ¿n thc same plane
but at a very small angle more than a right angle
20 relative to the body of the fram@ so that the
legs are spaced further apart at their distal
than at their proximal ends, thereby facilitating
attaehmcm cf thc frame tc thc casing by p0si_
tioning said legs in said grooved casing edge p,0r_

The invention will be fully and comprehensively
understood from a consideration of the following

What is claimed as new is:

Ul mits counter boring at these points without mate
rially weakening the leg structure. v By this man
ner, the device is firmly attached to the scales and
the advertising matter appearing within the
frame and the means for causing illumination
thereof are securely protected. The frame may
be made up of various designs so as to render the
same more attractive to the individual scale to
which it is to be attached. rI'he material for
forming the frame and depending legs may be the
same as that used in the manufacture of scales or
may be of metal or other suitable material.
It is to be understood that this improvement is
capable of extended application and is not con
ñned to the exact showing of the drawing nor to
the precise construction described and, therefore,
such changes and modifications may be made
nor exceed the scope thereof as expressed in the
The combination with a scales casing having 5
substantially vertically positioned grooves formed
therein- in edge portions thereof, said grooves
being in the same plane but disposed relative to
each other in another than parallel relationship,
of a display panel adapted to being superimposed 10
upon said casing and including a pair of depend
ing leg-like members forming a counter-part of
said grooves and adapted to being received there
, in, said legs being disposed in the same plane but
at a very small angle greater than a right angle 15
relative to said panel and spaced further apart at
their distal than at their proximal ends, whereby
said panel is firmly held in position due at least
in part to said spacing of said legs.
